Summary (From the publisher):

The girl was very beautiful and apparently defenceless. So why should a blood hungry mob seek to destroy her? Smith saved her life, but had he known what she was, or how she would try to thank him - he might have left her to die. For the girl was Shambleau, and across the galaxy that name meant death - or worse...
